Animating elements in a drawing


Is it possible to animate elements within a drawing? I don’t want to change the camera view, but I want to raise a flap from a surface.

Where do I start?


One of the most basic forms of animating in SU is to use layers and scenes.
Here I have created 5 copies of the “flap” and arrayed them and placed each one on a layer.
Then you create the scenes with the correct layer visible.
When played it flows as an animation.


Thanks! That looks like it should be possible for me to handle.



Have a look at this topic and the example models…
